Barihunks Making a Difference

[Nathan Gunn & Chris Herbert]

If there is a true renaissance man among our barihunks it would have to be Chris Herbert. His résumé is incredibly impressive. He holds a B.A. in Music from Yale University, an M.A. in Middle Eastern Studies from Harvard University, writes for the Huffington Post and other periodicals, served as Vice President for the international strategic communications firm Brown Lloyd James, served as a Director of Research for the Denver Research Group and was a special prize winner at the Grand Concours de Chant competition. Herbert has added to that impressive résumé by serving as the Director of Advancement for "Sing for Hope."

According to Sing for Hope's website, the organization was "founded by opera singers with a desire to lift their voices for social change, Sing for Hope mobilizes world-class artists – from classical musicians to photographers to Broadway performers – who donate time and talent in volunteer service programs that benefit schools, hospitals and communities."

Check out Sing for Hope's latest effort called "Play me, I'm yours," which is bringing pianos to the streets of New York. The promo video also features barihunk Nathan Gunn. If you're moved by this amazing effort, you can make a donation at the YouTube site or at the Sing for Hope website. A $25 donation provides six New York City students with an hour of dynamic arts and leadership education or brings bedside performances to five hospital-bound patients.

Go ahead, make a difference.
